While NPD would not disclose estimate sales numbers, they rank the top five brands as follows: Apple, Rolex, Fitbit, Patek Philippe and Samsung.



Of these brands, Apple appears to be out in front by quite a margin. Another study, from IDC and Strategy Analytics, estimates that the company shipped 23 million Apple Watches in 2018, about half of the smartwatch shipments worldwide. "


Sad. Men have lost their soul as well as a sense of style and timeless, distinguished tradition. Like a quality cigar and a sharp suit. Now they wear wristpads and dress down with ankle high pants like a pack of losers.

I'm not that hardcore of a watch guy, but I do have a couple that have crossed my path that are very much "me"

Marathon General Purpose Mechanical Military Field Watch with Tritium and Sapphire Glass (34mm)

This is my rugged / camping / field watch. Favorite thing about it is the size/weight and the tritium tubes and that it never needs batteries.





And the most recent acquisition, from my brother who basically moved onto something else.

Citizen Satellite Wave World Time
Solar charging, very accurate, sync via satellite.

Ignorance at its best. Only snowflakes make a big deal out of nothing and then blame someone else...just saying.

new brand alert - ZINVO

Official Website - Mens and Womens Watches
– ZINVO Watches


My favorite new watch is ZINVO! They make really unique watches and also offer free shipping. I am really happy with this brand. I don't shop much online would rather see in person but it was all good.

Any suggestions on other waterproof watches?

My new favorite watch brand is called ZINVO WATCHES!

They create very unique watches. I ordered an orange watch to start and was very impressed. I don't order online often but was happy with the free shipping option.

I've always had an interest in watches. I've got a small collection that I rotate through. My red & black GMT has been my go-to for several days now, and the 16710 could easily be my one and only!

It’s nice to see so many cool watches and that this group is into them. Here are some of my favorites I’ve collected thus far. I apologize in advance if they are crooked as I’m uploading from my phone.

I LOVE that snowflake dial GS I wanna see that spring drive movement in person one day.

My pretty modest collection is a Marathon General Purpose, a Seiko SNK803 on a navy/red nato, and a Scurfa D1-300 on a navy rubber strap. All very cheap in the watch in the watch world, but I've been happy with them as I haven't been into watches for very long.

I almost caught myself getting an Air King 14000 during black Friday, but decided to be more responsible for some reason.

It is a really great watch, the titanium makes it so light you forget it is on. The downfall of it is that it is a complete scratch magnet! It was my daily wearer and was getting wrecked. Now the explorer gets the abuse.
